Best hardwood floor textures

The textures of a hardwood floor can add a lot to a décor. It can accentuate the elegance or add to the warmth of a more casual setting. A variety of hardwood flooring textures are available on the market.

Let’s take a look at the top 3

Smooth

Nature’s classic elegance, expressed simply.

A very delicate sanding gives wood a silky texture with classic allure while highlighting the grain. Smooth is a timeless texture that is still the most popular in hardwood flooring.

Open grain

The uniqueness of wood shines through

Every wood species is unique, and this is what makes the material so warm and rich. A species’ cellular structure influences its appearance and, in some cases, its texture as a hardwood floor.

Open-grain woods may appear coarser than closed-grain woods because the surface isn’t as smooth. When the wood is sawn, the pores are split, creating beautiful little rifts and valleys. This open-grain pattern stands out even more when dark stain is applied, but is still noticeable with lighter shades.

Hand Scraped

Uniquely perfect imperfection

Hand Scraped texture, sometime called “Wave”, ranges from subtle to extreme, and from repetitive to more authentic pattern, depending on the method used and the desired end result.

Remember that each manufacturer has its own Hand Scraped process, so one manufacturer’s Hand Scraped flooring will look different from the others’.

Plus you should NOT expect your delivered flooring to look exactly like the small sample you saw at a flooring retail store. The beauty of real hand scraped flooring is that it’s meant to look antiqued, so no two pieces will be exactly the same.

While this texture is ideal for rustic décors, it also creates a nice contrast in modern rooms and adds casual appeal to traditional settings.

How to remodel at low cost?

If you are looking to remodel at low cost. Painting the floor can be the cheapest and fastest solution you can use to have a floor remodel.

If your economy does not allow you to change floors, choosing to paint the one that is already there is an excellent idea. The advantages are incredible and it will save you money.

Achieve amplitude or reduction, painted floors can deceive the eye.
Painted floors can create some clever optical illusions. If you have white or light-colored walls, paint the floors to match to make the space feel much larger.

Choose paint with a brighter gloss or add a gloss top coat to bring in more light. Or, choose a color that is darker than the walls and ceiling to visually cement a space and add drama. They are infinitely customizable.

On the other hand, painted floors do not need to be solid. Use painter’s tape to create painted checkerboards, patterns, borders, or “rugs.” You can also delineate the space by painting areas in different shades. The effectiveness of this option is that it gives freedom to the imagination, achieving dazzling finishes with just customization.

Painting floors is cheap

Compared to the cost of laying a whole new floor, painting old floors is incredibly inexpensive: all you need is a gallon or a few of paint, depending on the size to be painted, plus primer and supplies.

And over time… Worry about the wear it may have, the solution is simple just add more paint.

No need to worry too much about wear and tear. When your floors start to lose their shine, simply add another coat of paint, or a few touch-ups, and you’ll be back to a like-new floor.

Painted hardwood floors are most often associated with seaside cottages, where they originated for their uncomplicated practicality, but painting can be done not only on hardwood floors but also on tile, concrete, plywood, and even linoleum.

I did not wait any longer, nor did I spend more with professionals, you will be able to have a flat like new with a low investment.
